This campsite is located in Sturt National Park

Sturt National Park is one of Australia’s driest, most remote national parks. It’s a sea of sand, seemingly endless gibber plains, red rock and mulga bushes. Lake Pinaroo, near Fort Grey in the park’s east, was placed on the Ramsar list in 1996 – when it fills it is a significant refuge for large numbers of waterbirds and waders.
